Walt Disney Studios Expansion Update

Disneyland Paris has released more information regarding the Walt Disney Studios expansion, as the main construction works begin the end of this year! According to Disneyland Paris, the upcoming Walt Disney Studios expansion will include a lake which will be the largest natural stage of Walt Disney Studios Park!

The shimmering lake will be a 3-hectare lake and boast to be created with beautiful lakeside promenades, landscaped banks, waterfront restaurants and impressive vistas. This lake will be the new leisure hub of Walt Disney Studios.

Not only will the lake be an impressive feature to the park, but it will also serve as a unique entertainment stage with a 360° viewing area. The lake will be fitted with the latest technologies to provide exciting water-based spectacles, complete with fountains, music and lights, special effects that are sure to delight guests.

David Wilson, site portfolio executive for Euro Disneyland Imagineering describes the lake as “the new, open-air development will add to the beauty and immersiveness of Walt Disney Studios Park, while providing the perfect centre stage for not only daytime shows but also nighttime spectaculars. It will completely rejuvenate the park’s experience,”.

The lake will also serve as a gateway to new themed universes that will surround it. Guests will find themselves immersed in the Arendelle, mesmerised by the 40 meter-high mountain. After leaving Arendelle, guests will find themselves living their Jedi dreams in an area dedicated to a galaxy far, far away in Star Wars land. Both lands promise to feature one major attraction alongside a dining location, shops and character encounter opportunities.

Similar to Disneyland Park, the development will be complemented by a tall, landscaped berm at the perimeter that will help mitigate potential impact to the neighbouring region.
